President Trump faces growing criticism from across the political spectrum. On Thursday, Republican Senator Bob Corker of Tennessee openly questioned Trump’s stability and competence.

Sen. Bob Corker: “The president has not yet—has not yet been able to demonstrate the stability nor some of the the competence that he needs to demonstrate in order to be successful.”

Democratic Congressmember Steve Cohen of Tennessee has announced plans to introduce articles of impeachment against President Trump.

James Murdoch, the son of Rupert Murdoch, has condemned President Trump’s reaction to Charlottesville. Murdoch wrote, “I can’t even believe I have to write this: standing up to Nazis is essential; there are no good Nazis. Or Klansmen, or terrorists.” Murdoch, who is the CEO of 21st Century Fox, also pledged to donate $1 million to the Anti-Defamation League.
